Sewage Backup Damage

This sewage backup was caused from a sewer line backup at a commercial complex and made quite a mess in this building. Our team was dispatched to clean up the mess. Sewage is considered a category 3 water damage aka "black water" and is the most extreme kind of water damage that requires swift action to mitigate serious health risks. Black water includes sewage, rising flood waters as well as river and ground water. Black water contains contaminants ranging from parasites and viruses, to bacteria and fungi. Contact with sewage without wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) and following proper procedures is a serious health threat. There’s the risk of contracting over a dozen diseases, such as hepatitis A and encephalitis. Leave this type of clean up to the experts at SERVPRO of Effingham, Mattoon, Charleston.
